One bolt has been added to the top of Rolling Thunder after the crux to protect either the traverse to the anchors, or the extension to Burrito Killa. Clip with an extended bolt to reduce drag. Route still is not recommended to top rope, as almost any use of the Heavens Ledge anchor puts the rope directly on the sharp arete of Burrito Killa.
Bolt added with FA permission.

On Sighting this route seems more like in the 11a/b range as the crux is thin and technical even if not that long. Compared to some of the other routes at Ozone this one is definitely out of character with the grading. I took a fall at the crux and landed on the ledge below but with soft knees; no injury and finished the route but an attentive belayer and some thought to the fall line is required at the crux section.
